A weekend convention in the Chicago suburbs turned controversial because of a high school skit depicting a modern slave auction.

Two Barrington High School students performed the skit Friday in front of an audience during the 2016 Illinois Junior Classical Convention, a Latin competition, at the Westin hotel in Itasca.

The skit was performed during the “roll call” segment, in which each participating school sent delegates to the podium to introduce the school they were representing.

Video of the skit showed one of the students with a chain around his neck. It ended with an auction winner.
